Your DH Machine


Recommended Posts

Dont have the current specs of my bike, but its a Specialized Big Hit. I'm planning to upgrade a number of things on it sometime, including the paint job :D This is my plan, tell me what you think:


From this:



To something like this:



Did it in photoshop, as you can see I'm quite a fan of the new Demo finishes :D


So I plan to get new forks, rear suspension, bars, and brakes on my Big Hit.

that's a very sweet sled MissionS :thumbup:


Patches: howz those nukeproof rims doing?


yeah, that is a sweet sled MissionS. What's with only having a rear brake though... is it a dirt jumper thing, hahaha ;)


@ Cap, Nukeproof wheels are awesome! I was gonna custom build some Spank tweet-tweets onto hope pro II's... but then I would have to wait 2 weeks for the build, and it would cost me 1.5x what the nukeproofs do. So I'm very happy.

How easy is it converting to air?


Apparently it is pretty easy as sram brings out the seals kit for warrenty replacements for the Boxxer world cup.
